Paper Craft Crew Sketch #275

It is Wednesday - and that means it is time to play with the Paper Craft Crew! We have another fantastic sketch for you for inspiration this week!  Here is what I created!

I flipped the sketch and decided to keep it simple! Here are some details!
Stamps: (Unity) Hearts Around the Globe, Love Brings You Home Ink: Stazon, (SU) Real Red, (Ranger Distress) Peacock Feathers (Ken Oliver) Colorburst in Lime Green Zig Real brush markers Paper: (Canson) Watercolor, (SU) Sending Love, Cupcakes & Carousels, Whisper White CS (K&Company) Tabs, (Basic Grey) Half Pearls
I used my Aqua pen very liberally over the colouring on my image just to add some subtle change to the colors. 

You have a week to play along with us over at the Paper Craft Crew challenge!
Be sure to link up your designs!

Love, Peace n' Ink Amber

Stamp Ink Paper #132- Cake Walk!

Happy Tuesday!
Today I am joining the Stamp Ink Paper team for another challenge! This one is going to be a piece of cake! (HA!)

I was trying to wrap my head around how I was going to pull off this challenge - as I am still waiting for my new, FUN stuff to arrive from Stampin Up.  It is taking FOREVER! (well, it feels like it!) So, I had to take to the internet and hit Pinterest for some inspiration, and I came up with a fun design I CASE'd!

I used one simple stamp from Unity's Happy Snail Mail kit, and the fussy-cut little candle I added is from Stampin' Up!'s Big News set. I hit my stash of dies from Reverse Confetti and Lil Inkers to create that cake - and my paper choices are from my scrap bin - as it it is overflowing and I hate to waste! I used a Blackberry Bliss cardstock base - I just LOVE purple and it is still one of my favourite SU colors ever (sadly, retired).  I added a few simple sequins to finish it off. Piece of cake - RIGHT? 

Be sure to play along with…

Friends of Unity Blog Hop - January 2018

Welcome - and Happy 2018!!

The Friends of Unity are Blog Hopping again!

 I will also have a list of all the Blog Hop participants the end of my post. But for now - check out what I designed for the Hop this month! Our theme is (who would've guessed) 😆...Winter.

I just ADORE this little penguin! The Unity set is called "Mittens in Winter"
and I colored this little fella with my Prismas on the Kraft paper, then added a we bit of ink sponged around the edge of the layer. It is one of my faves from Unity - and I hope you like it too!

Paper Craft Crew Challenge #274

Welcome! And Happy 2018!
This is my 1st blog post of the New Year - and it's super exciting, because it is my  debut post as a new Design Team member for the Paper Craft Crew!! I can't wait to play along with all of you!  If you are visiting my Blog for the 1st time - here is a little bit of "ME" Trivia!
I live in Southeastern Saskatchewan, Canada, in a small town - farming is the main industry here.... but my hardworking hubby works for the Town and is a Firefighter, and I work in an accounting office as a Bookkeeper! I am a mom to 2 pretty awesome adult kids and a little boy has my heart and calls me Grandma. I am pretty blessed :)  I have been consumed with this stamping and inky addiction for close to 10 years now. I do  have some fave companies to use - but I love it all! 

Here is what I designed for you this week with our awesome sketch!

This sketch had so much opportunity to change things up!  Here are the details:
